Successor to the 3500GT, the Mistral is a bit of a forgotten exotic, falling in between the beautiful Touring and Vignale bodied grand tourers that made Maserati a household name and the mid-engined sports cars of the 1970s. The name Mistral derives from French, describing a cold, northerly wind. There's nothing cold about this grand tourer though, with a throaty straight six good for a top speed closing in on 150 mph. Looking a bit like the Buick engined Apollo GT, this Frua bodied car was available in both steel and aluminum bodied form. This Mistral for sale in Florida is an aluminum bodied car.

The Mistral is one of those classic Italian exotics that can be had for well under $100,000. Given that this is the higher horsepower 4.0 liter car and with the aluminum shell, I'd say $70,000 is just about right, as this not a completely restored car, but has had a bit of work done to it to keep it presentable.
